Advances in Social Simulation: Proceedings of the 9th by Syed Muhammad Ali Abbas, Shah Jamal Alam, Bruce Edmonds

By Syed Muhammad Ali Abbas, Shah Jamal Alam, Bruce Edmonds (auth.), Bogumił Kamiński, Grzegorz Koloch (eds.)

This e-book is the convention lawsuits of ESSA 2013, the 9th convention of the eu Social Simulation organization. ESSA meetings represent annual occasions, which function a world platform for the alternate of principles and dialogue of state-of-the-art study within the box of social simulations, either from the theoretical in addition to utilized point of view. This booklet contains 33 articles, that are divided into 4 subject matters: equipment for the advance of simulation types, purposes of agent-based modeling, Adaptive habit, social interactions and international environmental switch and utilizing qualitative info to notify behavioral ideas. we're confident that this booklet will serve readers as an invaluable compendium which provides in a nutshell the latest advances on the frontiers of social simulation research.

A land-use pattern is defined as a combination of different land-uses. A crop combined with an irrigation technology is an option, whereas one option together with its related area forms a land-use. Land-uses are not located spatially, but land-use patterns are stored as lists of pairs {option, area} related to farmers. In total the model contains nine different crops: traditional cereals (wheat, barley), sunflower, high yield cereals (maize, alfalfa), sugar beet, vineyards, olives, melon, paprika and garlic, and four different irrigation technologies (flood-, sprinkler-, drip-irrigation or rainfed).

Building on Granovetter’s “strength of weak ties” theory [18], sociological research on “small world” networks suggests that in a social network the presence of bridges promotes cultural diffusion, homogeneity and integration, but only under the assumption that relations hold a positive value [13]. This last concern is a trademark of the social simulation stream which uses a non-reasoning approach to agent modeling. We will show that our model does not need such a specification. Following the experimental design by Flache & Macy [13], we use a “caveman graph” to represent a situation where clusters are maximally dense.
